Subject: Graet Show-- I Was there
Twas a mighty letdown from the previous night's experience in that about half the folks from the night before showed up for numerous odd reasons. Mostly because, the night before, so many had been busted and sent to loony bins all over the state.

But here the remblance resolved, our heroes, the Grateful Dead, in their original five man ensemble crankin' out tunes for the century, blessed us up good. God bless 'em.

Twas the last time I was in Winterland when you could walk down in front with no troublin' o' th' waters.

You dig me, son?

An absolutely pristine recording of a brilliant performance of a bank just coming into it's own. As sad as it as that some of the best songs of this show are apparently lost to history, it's really great to be able to hear such detail.

Thanks again, Charlie!

##############__"Smokin' GRATEFUL DEAD Show"


Hi-Fi Stereo Soundboard. Excellent Mix.

01. I Know You Rider - 8:02
02. Sugar Magnolia - 8:02
03. Cumberland Blues - 6:50
04. Big Boss Man - 7:56
05. Me and My Uncle - 4:11
06. Deal - 4:55
07. Truckin' - 8:17
08. Turn On Your Lovelight - 16:56
09. Uncle John's Band - 6:39 (electric)
10. Casey Jones - 5:20

"TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT" - Pigpen lets the GRATEFUL DEAD go crazy during this performance. Pigpen tells it like it is and spells it out to the audience what men really want in this version.

Pigpen demonstrates his "conductor" like abilities while performing "Turn On Your Lovelight". Like a cook with spices & ingredients he would mix the GRATEFUL DEAD into a tasty dish that everyone LOVED!

I highly recommend this version of "TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT" to all collectors of 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD. Pigpen puts on a very unique performance.

Bill Graham speaks to the crowd at 15:30 minutes into TOYLL to tell them "we are going past the 2 AM thing, if it stops it's not because of us, it's because they've come in and turned off the switch but we'll just keep going until they get here".

Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it NOW or you'll be sorry.

Eat, Drink, be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the love from Winterland Arena!
